Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 7/7/2017

Introduction and Scope of Practices

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) applies to NewPathVR, Inc. (“NewPathVR,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and its affiliates and subsidiaries worldwide, including, but not limited to, RenewVR. The Policy applies any time you deal with NewPathVR, whether in person, by telephone, by mail, or at any online or mobile site or application that we own and control (“Site”). The only exception to this is if different practices are provided and state that they apply instead of this Policy.

This Policy explains:

how we collect, use, and share information from or about you;

how our online advertisements (such as banner ads) on third party sites treat data;

your choices about our use of your personal information; and

how you can access and update your information.

Sometimes, we appear on a site owned by a third party (like a NewPathVR page or handle on a social media site) or link to a third-party site. When we do, that third party’s privacy policies and terms of use, not ours, will apply unless you are told otherwise. Also, some of NewPathVR’s services (“Services”) are offered through banks or other financial institutions. In those cases, the third parties’ policies will govern their use of consumer data.

Types of Information We Collect

Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). PII means information or a combination of information that can be used to identify, contact, or locate a specific person. We may collect the following types of PII from you:

Contact information, such as name, email address, mailing address, fax or phone number;

Payment and financial information, such as credit or other payment card information, bank account, or billing address;

Social Security Number or other national tax ID number

Device geolocation (geographical location)

Unique identifiers such as user name, account number, or password; and,

Preference information such as product wish lists, order history, or marketing preferences.

Sometimes, we may combine PII you provide with information from third-party sources. For example, we may confirm your address with the postal service or verify your personal information with a credit-reporting agency. We will treat the combined information in accordance with the terms of this Policy.

Other Information (“OI”). OI is any information other than PII that does not reveal your identity or directly relate to a person. We may collect the following OI from you:

Information about your business such as company name, company size, or business type;

Demographic information, such as age, gender, interests and ZIP code;

Device and other tracking information, such as browser information, device identifiers, operating system, or information gained from cookies, pixels or other tracking technologies.

OI may also include PII we have de identified or aggregated to the point where it no longer identifies a particular individual. If we ever combine OI with any PII, we treat it as PII is treated under this Policy. In some jurisdictions, some OI may be considered PII by law. In those cases, we will treat the information as PII is treated under this Policy.

How We Collect Personally Identifiable Information

We collect PII when you provide it to us.  This can occur when you fill out applications, create accounts, complete a purchase, add money to your account, send in forms, take surveys, or fill in various online fields on our Sites. We also collect PII when you contact us with inquiries, customer support requests, or employment applications.

We may also collect the PII of third parties when you provide it to us. For example, if you choose to use our service to send a gift to a friend or register a family member for an account, we will ask you for their name and address or email address. In addition, we may collect third party PII through our “Refer a Friend” program. NewPathVR stores this information for the sole purpose of completing the transaction. If you provide PII of a friend or family member and they want us to delete this information, they should contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We may not always be able to remove their PII. We will let them know if we cannot do so and why.

How We Use Personally Identifiable Information We Collect

We may use PII we collect for the following purposes:

to provide you with the Services you requested;

to verify your identity and/or location in order to allow access to your accounts, conduct online transactions, and secure your PII;

to send you important information, such as changes to terms, conditions, and policies and/or other administrative information;

to respond to your inquiries and fulfill your requests;

to track referrals from partner websites;

to personalize your experience on a Site by presenting content or offers tailored to you;

to send you marketing communications you have signed up for or that we believe may be of interest to you;

to allow you to use various Site features.

o Please note that some features require that you provide PII in order to use them (eg. many of the features at www.renewvr.com) whereas other tools do not. You may request that certain information that you enter into our Sites be stored for future access and use. You have the option not to save the information;

to assist in verifying your identity and account status when we deal with you through our social media pages. We may combine this information with information we already have;

to enable you to post your profile, preferences, and contact or be contacted by NewPathVR for projects or work;

for business purposes, including data analysis, audits, developing and improving products and services, enhancing our Sites, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of promotional campaigns; and.

for risk control, fraud detection and prevention, and compliance with laws and regulations.

Service providers: We may provide your PII to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, such as shipping your order or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your PII only as necessary to provide these services.

Referral partners: We offer referral-based commission systems through third-party partners through which publisher websites may refer users to our pages to make purchases. The third-party partner will be identified when you sign up. Data generated from the commission system, which may include PII and OI, will be owned and controlled by both NewPathVR and the third-party partner. This Policy will govern NewPathVR’s use of the data. The third party’s privacy policy will govern its use of the data. When you sign up as a publisher, we will link to the third party’s privacy policy and ask you to agree to it.

Additional Disclosure: We may also disclose your PII:

As permitted or required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;

When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;

If NewPathVR is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets. You will be notified by email and/or by a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your PII;

to any other third party with your prior consent.

How We Collect and Use Other Information

We and certain third party service providers with whom we have agreements may collect OI in a variety of ways, including:

Log files: Most browsers collect certain information, such as your IP address, device type, screen resolution, operating system version, and internet browser type and version. This information is gathered automatically and stored in log files. We may link this data to PII we have collected about you.

Tracking technologies: We and our service providers use cookies, beacons, tags, scripts, and HTML5 local storage. These technologies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on our Sites, pages visited, language preferences, and your relationship with us. We can use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, measure the effectiveness of our communications, tailor our advertising to you, and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

You can refuse to accept cookies.  Most devices and browsers offer their own privacy settings for cookies and HTML5 local storage. You will need to manage your cookie settings for each device and browser you use. However, if you elect not to accept cookies, your use of the features on our Sites may be limited or impaired, and you may not be able to access certain features of our Sites at all.

These features may collect your IP address, identify the page you are visiting on our website, and set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social Media Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our website. The privacy statement of the company providing it governs your interactions with these Widgets. We will comply with any legal obligations placed on the use of these technologies by certain jurisdictions, which may affect how these Widgets function.

Security and Retention

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received, including encrypting the transmission of any sensitive information, such as payment card information.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Some of our websites offer you the ability to upload your own image to be used to create a personalized product. You may have the option to make these images available in publicly-accessible directories. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from these public forums, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact us by postal mail at the contact information listed below.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by contacting us by postal mail at the contact information listed below. We will respond to your request within a reasonable time.

NewPathVR acknowledges that you have the right to access your personal information. NewPathVR may have no direct relationship with some individuals whose personal data it processes. In those situations, an individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct their query to NewPathVR’s partner who has the direct relationship (the data controller). If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.

“Do Not Track” Preferences

Many browsers provide you an option to request that a web application disable either its tracking and/or cross-site user tracking of an individual user.  We do not track your online activities across different Sites, and we only track your activity within a Site to the extent you log into your account.

Therefore, our practices remain the same whether or not you enable the “Do Not Track” feature.

Claiming of prizes requires an email response to RE:NEW from the winning sender email address within 30 days of being notified of winning at the email address used to enter.
